Fig. 74 of the Sermonibus Animalis Series.
You load sixteen tons, and what do you get? This Rock Kestrel of course! But he’s no mere “miner’s canary.” As a star coal miner, he’s hauled many a minecart through the tunnels with his mighty wings (one wing of iron, the other of steel), and his tiny helmet lamp. I guess this bird of prey only preys upon wayward coal nuggets that need extracting!
